Russian Caravan has been produced following an old recipe. It is a blend of several Chinese black teas – Oolong, Keemum and Lapsang Souchong. Lapsang Souchong gives the tea slightly smoky fragrance.
The name Russian Caravan originated in the 18th century when new trade routes opened between China and Europe along the Russian border. The tea was transported by camel caravans.
